Shipping Policy


When will my parcel be shipped?

Most products advertised is located in Auckland, New Zealand and upon receiving your payment we ship products in stock out within 24 hours, except weekends and public holidays.

If you choose to pay via Internet Banking or Direct Bank Deposit, we need to wait for the payment to clear in our account before processing the order for the courier pick up. So if you need your order fast, payment via Credit Card, Visa Debit or PayPal will speed up the process.

There are products listed on Mixed Media Art Supplies that are shipped from other parts of the country.  These are our products listed by our independent advertisers.  Although Mixed Media Art Supplies is constantly in close contact with our independent advertisers, we cannot be held responsible for their business practices.

A few of the products listed on Mixed Media Art Supplies are imported.  Because we buy these products in bulk directly from the manufacturer, there might be a delay in shipping.  This time frame will never be longer than 4 weeks unless otherwise stated.  We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this delay.  It is an unfortunate necessity in order to pass the savings on to you, our valued customer.

If there is an imported product listed with delayed shipping and you would like to have it shipped to you sooner, please contact us in order to arrange a different shipping method.  It is possible to have the item shipped to you sooner with additional shipping charges.   The product will then be shipped to you directly from the manufacturer via airfreight within 7 days with additional charges
